Uleiahtie Weatherstrip -- Venetian Blinds Koyalcliromc Furniture Many Methods Are Available for Good Closet Lighting Proper lighting for the closets in a home may be solved through selection from many available methods. A ceiling light in a closet may have a pull chain or wall switch. There is always the danger, however, that this light may be forgotten and burn needlessly for hours. A switch outside the closet door may be equipped with a pilot light which glows red when the light in the closet is on. A door switch which automatically turns the light in the closet on when the door is opened and turns it oft -when th3 door is closed is satisfactory. Another arrangement is a light which bums for a stated time r.nd then automatically turns off. This guards against wasted electricity. May Convert Porches Into Sun Parlors Seldom-used side and rear porches, carry-overs from an era when numerous porches w e r e prevailing architectural features, can be converted into sun parlors with comparatively little remodeling and expense. A glassed-in sunroom, providing maximum sun and light, is frequently the most popular room in the house. Besides being a cheerful place in which to sit, a sunroom can be used for flowers and often is made into a summer sleeping porch. Extra Ceilings Prove Useful in Basements Now that basements have gone "society" and are an accepted part of the house, the addition of a ceiling in the cellar serves a number of useful purposes. When only one thickness of flooring is used it prevents the passage of dust to the upper floors, and does away with corners and spaces between joists where dust and cobwebs collect. If a fire-resistant material is used for the ceiling, it retards the spread of fire to the upper floors in a house.
